Let me know if he gets into grease. I know where the big score is, although there's a greased Scotsman who guards it.

How long before either the Chinese or North Korean official government news agencies report Biden is a copper thief?
 
2013-01-24 02:50:25 PM
I think Biden's a goofball, and I normally like the Onion, but they're really reaching for a chortle with this.

House Minority Lead John Boehner?

Still so-so but significantly funnier:
Also Onion

That was stupid. I thought the theme was supposed to be that Biden was a conniving but ultimately lovable meathead. Copper thieves are the scum of the earth and should all be dragged out into the gutter and shot.

CSB...

I recently bought a house from an estate and in the basement I found 14 sealed 200ft of 6/3 wire. What the old guy was doing with it, I don't care. But there worth $175-200 a piece.

If it was up to me, I'd let you go; but the boys have a temper, and they've been drinking all day.

Yeah, this one was not very funny.

More money to be made selling the titanium out of catalytic converters.

Does this mean we need to buy it for him?

This was one of those Onion articles where the headline and picture were 99% of the funny.

That's how the Onion has been the past few years.  I rarely read the articles anymore.

They write the headlines first, and if the other writers think it's funny, they write an article. The This American Life episode with a bit on The Onion explains their process in more detail.

A few years back I had to redo the plumbing in our downstairs bathroom. I used the vinyl stuff instead of copper pipe. The compression fittings were expensive but it went together like a dream!

But I digress - stay the f**k away from my house, Joe! I've got very little copper left in it to steal.

There should be a 'Fake' tag for links that take you to crapholes like the Onion.

Dude, what? You didn't like the ONION tag?

I don't care what you gomers say, I love the whole "Diamond/Dynamite Joe" concept created by the Onion. The notion that this long-term politico, beloved by the good but simple folk of Delaware, is really this sketchy, trashy working-class guy with the trans-am and pedestrian goals and aspirations. Partying and getting laid, that's about it. I loved the one about having to lay low in Mexico until some bad shiat blew over. I've spent some time in the Delaware, sure, and I've met these people. The thought of Biden out looting some house in Reston for copper pipes and wire doth cause me to Laugh Aloud or "LA" as the kids like to Sext each other these days.

Not my opinion. Several pier reviewed studies have documented their worthlessness and their need to be shot like the dogs they are.

Me personally, no. My brother works in construction, and I've known a few of the types in passing. I have had my car window broken out for 75 cents in change in the dash. $100 window replacement. Really, you piece of shiat? I hope he's dead of super AIDS.

Not a fan of the Onion stealing Dadboner's routine and applying it to Biden.

Joe Biden is gone full Jim Anchower.

Hell, most of these copper thieves are probably day laborers at the very job sites they're ripping off.

Catalytic converters typically contain rhodium, palladium and platinum, not titanium.

Are these studies only reviewed while on the dock of the bay, wasting time, listening to Otis Redding?

Where are these studies? By whom were they done?

Oh, and BTW, you sound like a humorless dick.

Almost forgot. It's "peer reviewed" you ignorant jackass.
 
2013-01-25 08:55:11 PM
Taking copper thievery rather personal aren't you? Get back on your meds and stop ruining peoples shiat, junkie.
